A Bridge to Somewhere

From Cleveland Plain Dealer via Make Them Accountable

There is a bridge to somewhere, but can we cross it?
Or instead, prop-politics? Paperdollitics?
The voting booth is a very private place.
It’s been said that this is not a race about race.
But of course it is, and it’s about our bodies,
our partners, the earth and our faiths (plural),
As well, or are those just props, too?
Is the flag an accessory?
